Software Complexity: A Statistical Case Study Through Insertion Sort

by Anchala Kumari and Soubhik Chakraborty .

Abstract: The present paper makes use of factorial experiments to assess software complexity using insertion sort as a trivial example. We next propose to implement the methodology in quicksort and other advanced algorithms later on.

Key Words: Insertion sort, average complexity, interchanges, parameters of input distribution, stochastic modeling of deterministic computer experiment
